A decade of economic slump has certainly taken their toll on corporate Japan, and no one group more so than the white collar workers that laden Japan Inc. For Toaru Corporation, a large Osaka-based trading company, times are tough. At the products trading division in the Tokyo office of this struggling company, desperation is always in the air as this on-the-verge-of-being-downsized group tries hard to find a new business niche to survive. Their morale low and their activity listless, the group needs leadership. Enter Assistant Manager Hamada (of comedy group "Downtown" fame) to shake things up. But can the ever-positive-thinking and hard-charging Hamada turn things around? This comedy will have you enjoying all the trials and tribulations of work, friendship, inter-company romance, family, and future dreams. Remember, there's always tomorrow.

1. Ashita go Arusa [Rating: 9/10]
I loved the drama so much...it was funny when Hitoshi Matsumoto plays random people out in the street when it gets too serious or weird in the episode. I think the first episode when he played a bike messenger talking all cool and reserved wating to get to his floor, and finally when he get to his destinaion he walks out of the elevator and smacks the lead cast member in the head with a large helmet i found it hilarious!!!!!!!!

2. Is this really a drama? [Rating: 8/10]
Can this be really a drama? Of course it can, but really it is a comedy-drama. The never give up attitude really shines through in Ashita ga arusa(WE HAVE TOMORROW) as they try to raise to the company ranks as number 1. In a world of being the best, we sometime forget that quality is better than quantity. If you always root for the underdogs then this is a show to watch.

It's absolutly hilarious considering that this drama is about every-day work at the company.....I really like the theme song which was origanally Sakamoto Quu san's song. I give it a 10.

Hiralous dorama about this man facing all sort of problems in his office and along came Inamori Izumi to aid him. Worthwhile watching in my opinion. ;)

Feb 2004: Very motivating drama. Don't give up easily when facing obstacles. A great drama about salaryman, but not my cup of tea.
